Default Demon Hunter

Does anyone like the band Demon Hunter? I think they kick butt! I'd like to meet them one day.

I like their vocals too because you can actually understand them!

My favorite song is "Sixteen". The drum notation is ridiculous. I have my drum teacher helping me with it. It switches from 3/4 to 4/4 for the first four measures and then it's 4/4 from there. And that's only the beginning! We have yet to transcribe the entire thing!

I was really into Training For Utopia. I saw them when they were on tour with Spitfire. When Demon Hunter came out, I thought, "Oh, cool, another one of Ryan Clark's bands. This ought to be good." Something about their first album didn't really resonate with me, though. Not chaotic enough or something. They were good in concert, I remember. They tore the place up!

If you can't understand other band's vocals then maybe you aren't listening hard enough?

I have that entire album. It's so awesome. It scared me when I first listened to it. It was all quiet and then BOOM! in your face.

For me, it's difficult to process lyrics sometimes, especially with heavy/thrash metal. I can make out the drums well, but when it comes to lyrics it's a little harder. Drums are easiest for me because there is typically one sound for a snare, bass, toms, and cymbals. I know they can have a different texture, but in general drums and cymbals have the same basic tone. With vocals (especially with growling/screaming), it's harder. There are many different sounds with vocals. Heck, I sometimes have trouble figuring out what people are saying in conversation!

Yogi is a great metal drummer.

But i really like Jesse Sprinkle's drumming on their first 2 albums.

Jesse Sprinkle went on to play for Dead Poetic.

I used to really be into them, killer drummer and their vocals are pretty, I grew out of the style but they're still definitely a good band.

I'm not a christian but that is no reason that christian metal can't exist. That's very narrow minded of you.
